A Czech soldier, serving in the Provincial Reconstruction Team in the Logar province, sustained light injuries on Wednesday after an anti-tank grenade attack, a spokeswoman for the Czech Army said. The soldier, who suffered a leg fracture and lighter injuries to his arm, was taken to a military hospital in the capital Kabul. Some 600 Czech troops now serve in Afghanistan as part of NATO’s ISAF mission; five Czech soldiers have been killed since the start of the operation.
